NPSIG survey for #iflaGlobalVision

Hi, Everyone!

We would like to bring you the possibility of participating in the initiative of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) through this Global Vision survey to help prioritize the actions that a connected library field can take.
We firmly believe that a field of  connected librarians will be able to achieve one of the true potential of libraries: to build literate, informed and participatory societies.
Give it a little time to complete it, because your contribution is very important to achieve these goals. ❤
You have time until July 4, and then the answers will be sent to IFLA to produce a report on Vision Global to be announced in early 2018.
Please, click here to fill in the form. Ready, set, go!
For more information about the #iflaGlobalVision visit https://globalvision.ifla.org.
Thanks!
